president obama took office and fifteen million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create twelve million new jobs over the next four years helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle-class. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message because we can't afford another four years like the last four years. ♪ >>> welcome back. hook who's sporting the nats gear. >> getting excited. trying to figure out who they're going to play and when. >> trying to get tickets already. >> standing room only. >> you can get the $30 tickets. >> it's worth it. it could be years. >> we need some music from we are the champions. who is that, queen? >> that's queen, of course. >> it is a festive day. >> this is a big day. i mean other than the capitals, we've had nothing to celebrate for yea
, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the preside
's plan for opportunity and growth. they clearly decided it has to be contrasting visions why obama is wrong and they claim romney is right. i think you'll see a lot of that on wednesday night. >> eric: they estimate 5 million americans will be watching. how important is it on wednesday? could it be the turning point in this race on wednesday night? >> i don't think people are saying, romney has to land a knockout blow, i don't think it has to happen. the polls seem to indicate and from top officials feel that obama is leading at this point is that the end of the night on wednesday night a lot of voters, millions of voters have to say, gee, i thought i was for obama but i'm not so sure. think don't have to put a yard sign for mitt romney on their front lawn. they need to sort of say, i thought i knew i was for but i'm not sure. if that happened and that would be enough for mitt romney. >> eric: what should we look for? should we watch for iconic line, are you better off than four years ago? >> i think from romney's point of view, he has to do a couple of things. he has to make the c
to $3 million for his campaign purchase either an idea of how it differs from what romney has been raising, this is three reports the camera, primary fundraising through the end of august, barack obama has raised 147 million, or 34% of his primary dollars of people who gave under $200. these are people mostly going online or respond to text messages or being hit by campaign aides as he walked precincts. and these are nations, depends on the month, but they average in 15, 20, $30 range. but it adds up to an enormous amount of money. romney so far this cycle, in a moment where you would think there's a lot of grassroots, has been really disappointing among small dollar donors. but more disappointing than john mccain was in 2008. arguably a more difficult year for republicans to get their base going. he is raise $40 million, or 18% of his take country and -- the reverse is happening. barack obama is actually, is raising less money this time than he did in 2008 as a sitting president for people to max out on their donation. in 2008 it was $2300 the max to give. this cycle is $2500. but
will be tough one on one when he has the stage. >>> and the obama touting a 181 million for september we have yet to hear from the romney campaign how they did last month. >> thank you for bringing us up to date from the romney camp. >> i don't know what the right number is, but i will tell you, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what about those recent numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more comfortable position and now they are running with this new number. what is your response. >> it is noticeable that a lot of economist are saying this is not possible. you would need more than 114,000 jobbings. i don't think it
the romney numbers . >> obama campaign said in the month of september they raised 181 million dollars. a biggest of either campaign so far this yoor. not as big as he was able to raise in the month of october in 08. no word for the romney campaign. but when i talked to staffers last night and discussed the obama total of over 181 million dollars. they all smiled and grinned and said perhaps we can top that. they haven't said that is the case. for mr. romney 12 million just since the debate. that is a vast amount of on line fund raise there is concern in the republican party that the big donor are making their money for the house and senate because mr. mitt romney had a tough go and well, in the wake of the debate uptake in big dollar donations for the romney campaign suggest they aleviated. there is a major phone bank and calling all over the country that type of grass roots is very, very important as we are 31 days from the election . it is electric. people were wait traffic was thick around that venu. i want to explain to everybody. we are monitor what the government is saying. he i

of the night on wednesday night a lot of voters, millions of voters have to say, gee, i thought i was for obama but i'm not so sure. think don't have to put a yard sign for mitt romney on their front lawn. they need to sort of say, i thought i knew i was for but i'm not sure. if that happened and that would be enough for mitt romney. >> eric: what should we look for? should we watch for iconic line, are you better off than four years ago? >> i think from romney's point of view, he has to do a couple of things. he has to make the case as to why obama's record is wrong which won't be news. he has to address the concern that a lot of people have and 47% video didn't help that he would favor the rich over the middle-class. he has to explain why his economic plan would actually help the middle-class is the best plan for the middle-class. it's not just about protecting romney's rich friends. farce is the president is concerned, if its wash, that is fine. he doesn't need to score an knockout blow. if it's a tie he comes out ahead. i think he'll go after romney and make that same pointed that romney's
a turn around. president obama came into debate ahead. with an estimated 60 million americans watching, moderator jim layrer asked can you put more people to work? romney would cut taxes and regulations on small business. >> my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates. >> governor romney's proposal calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. the average middle class family with children would pay about $2,000 more. it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. >> reporter: on medicare and social security,one agreement. >> neither the president nor are are i are proposing any changes. >> aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially. >> romney fired back a a major debate moment that the president weakened the economy by his focus on health care. >> i don't know how the president could have come into office facing rising unploimt and spending energy and passion fighting for obama care. >> we did work on this alongside working on jobs
. they are pledging more money. at the same time the obama campaign raised a record $150 million in september. so let me give you the checkbook, joe. do you spend that kind of money on ads? do you beef up your ground game? what do you do with that cash? >> i think both. i think what ads allow you to do is they allow you to microtarget. tough target carefully the people who are not yet decided or the people who might at the last minute change their mind. and certainly some of the folks that might change their mind are people who are soft democrats but aren't working right now or who are displeased with the economy, with the direction in which the country is headed. so you want to spend that money to get to them to reach them with a positive message and to get them to be solid on your hand. >> jamal, are you worried about the debate? do you think the president has more ground to make up and that might influence how they spend their money? >> the president certainly has ground to make up. it wasn't the greatest debate performance anyone has ever seen, and i think he's going to have to do better in the n

in on what's at stake here. since president obama's health care law was enacted, 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now covered by their parents' plans, and preventive care is covered 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole will start getting some help. they'll receive $250 to help pay for prescriptions, and that will over time fill in the doughnut hole. >> 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since it was enacted. hi also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i've strengthened medicare. we've added years to life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies that weren't making pea hemmier. >> reporter: by 2014 the law requireser everyone to have health insurance, whether they purchase it themselves or through employers and insurers can't deny you if you have a pre-existing condition or increase your rates. the law has become a cornerstone or the obama campaign. >> i refuse to eliminate health insurance for mill

and there are a few things that i think i can do to make it grow faster. but it's harder to make the case that obama has failed entirely on the economy when obviously we're at better place creating jobs, 5 million jobs since we hit the bottom. his policies are having impact and things are improving, that romney now has to go back and if we close more taxes and close loopholes and do things that i think we should do, it will the economy will grow faster. >> eliot: in terms of europe where the austerity approach it getting the biggest macro-approach in history and driving rates up across southern europe and budget deficits that are getting worse and worse. i don't see where mitt romney's argument has traction. it seems to me that the stimulus of the policy, traditional economics that barack obama has followed it seems to be working. neil, what am i missing here? >> romney has a point. things could be better. i don't know if they could have been made better, and that stimulus should have been bigger and if it has to do with the problems in the houseing market. there is a big target on the back of obama

to be pretty scary though. >>> september was a blockbuster fundraising month for president obama. the campaign announced it raised $181 million. that's the highest monthly total of the re-election campaign. the monthly haul was likely boosted by tv exposure during the democratic national convention. a romney campaign spokesman said it has not released the september totals but noted in a tweet that romney raised $12 million in the 48 hours after the debate. both candidates are still talking about the latest unemployment numbers. the jobless rate is now below 8%. the president was thrilled with the news while the republican nominee was skeptical. >> more americans are entering the work forceful more americans are getting jobs. >> the number of people in america, the participation of our adults in the work force were the same as at the time he got elected. why our unemployment rate would be 11%. >>> president obama is set to return to the bay area monday night. he will be fundraising at a concert in san francisco at the bill graham auditorium along with some high priced private fund-raisers. >>>
